The Cultch: Daisy Theatre’s “Little Dickens”

World-renowned puppeteer Ronnie Burkett returns to The Cultch!
The cast of The Daisy Theatre take on the beloved holiday classic, A Christmas Carol, in the merriest marionette mash-up ever. Faded Daisy diva, Esmé Massengill, plays the role of miserly, drunken, bitter Esmé Scrooge, as she encounters all your Daisy favourites (as Dickens’ familiar characters!) on her journey to redemption. A raucous, adults-only holiday treat, Little Dickens features The Daisy Theatre’s most iconic and beloved character, Schnitzel, as Tiny Tim in a special premiere event for The Cultch.

The draw: A raucous, adults-only holiday treat, Little Dickens features The Daisy Theatre’s most iconic and beloved character, Schnitzel, as Tiny Tim in a special premiere event for The Cultch.
It’s some of the funniest, most brilliant theatre you’ll ever be lucky enough to see” — The Province
Burkett delivers hilarity and vulgarity, catharsis and pathos, all via papier-mâché.” – Andrea Warner, The Georgia Straight

“Ronnie Burkett’s creations are remarkable feats of both manipulation and imagination” — The Guardian (UK)
